Controversial theory says third of dinosaurs never existed

A pair of scientists think we’ve over-counted the number of dinosaur species since we didn’t know enough about how they developed through life. (National Geographic) For example, scientists may have been counting infants, juveniles and adults of the same species as separate species since they seemed so different.

“Like birds and some other living animals, the juveniles went through dramatic physical changes during adulthood,” say paleontologists Mark Goodwin (University of California) and Jack Horner (Montana State University).

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
